Use of technology in the classroom

As a 21st Century Educational Institution GIS has full school Wi-Fi connectivity. GIS acknowledges that smartphones, iPads, Tablets and laptops are a factual component in the lives of its students and the school embraces openly and actively the exploratory use of these tools for education.
GIS promotes students to bring their own devices and have expanded the curriculum to include BYOD driven topics. GIS imposes a strict BYOD Acceptable Use Policy to protect the school and most importantly its students.

GIS wants students to be able to use engaging technologies in a collaborative, inquiry based format through a personalised learning environment where teachers are willing and able to use technology to facilitate and assist learners in transforming knowledge and skills into real life products, scenarios and solutions. By doing so, GIS equips students from a wide range of nationalities, cultures and religions for the demands and opportunities of a global twenty-first century society by offering a relevant, differentiated and rigorous curriculum in a stimulating and dynamic learning environment.

ALL PYP teachers in ALL subjects as well as SEN and EAL use iPads as a teaching and learning tool, this facilitates a technology rich learning environment that has led to better communication, makes instruction more efficient and effective, enhances thinking and learning skills and develops 21st century skills to life in a global society.
iPads have truly transformed the way the school teaches and learns. Due to the introduction of mobile devices GIS found that traditional classroom settings restricted student creativity and their ability to collaborate effectively. GIS has therefore remodelled of one of the Computer Labs and named it the “Collaboration Room”, where students are able to mirror their iPads using Wi-Fi and Apple TV. The room allows students to work collaboratively on projects using productivity apps such as iMovie’s, iBook Author and more. The room is multifunctional and is used to facilitate and used for all subjects where the possibility of IT is present, for instance we conduct Skype lessons, deliver Presentations, iPad lessons, Newsroom and more.
